Cobra Front Brakes, MM Rack Bushings, and PICTURES added...

Got the brakes in from Crossroadz Direct.com yesterday, going to tear it down tomorrow and try to get it all done this weekend, figured it was all in the same neighborhood so I saved it all to do at one time. I will try to get some pictures.

Will do Corey! Hope I don't run into any snags and everything fits like its supposed to. I really didn't want those cross drilled rotors, would have rather had just slotted or slotted ones, but getting them like this in the kit was the least expensive way and hopefully they will will hold up, have just heard horror stories about cracking etc. I like the way they look as long as they don't do that. These are Canadian made, hopefully they are ok, you know the Cobra calipers were made in Australia? LOL

I hope this is the last time you guys shut down for days to change anything and wipe out my pictures again, lol. The reason she is still up on the stands is I lost part of my SS brake line kit, so I had to order another set from Steeda thru Crossroadz Direct and now it will be at least Tuesday til they get here. So this evening I started on the rack bushing install, got everything apart but the sleeves, got to get ahold of those with my vice grips and try to pull them like stubborn teeth or something, then cut them off and put it all back together, then when the lines get here, put them on, bleed the system and she will be ready to put the wheels on and roll.

I am a little bit worried about that, but hopefully they will be ok. If not I will go with slotted only ones, I only got these because they came in the kit at a better price than I could get stock ones. I also like the look but have heard the stories about the cracks too. These were made by some company in Canada.

Everyone makes a big deal about drilled rotors cracking. They only crack under extreme pressure and heat in conditions like road racing. They are perfectly fine for normal street driving/racing.

Well then, thank-you Zack, that eases my mind, I don't plan any all out road racing any time soon, so I should be ok. I am still waiting for my Steeda SS brake lines to get here, and we have another darned rainy day here in Central North Carolina, so I guess no great loss. I have a few different pics up in the V8 section if you haven't looked at this post there. Here are some I took when I did the MM alum. rack bushing install too.

Got it all back together today and took it out for a test run with the top down all over town, did real well, I could tell that I do need a front end alignment, other than that its all cool!!

I also put on these FRPP Bullitt Pedals, the gas pedal was a real PIA, getting that pin out, and back in especially was something else, in fact its still sticking out about 1/4 inch, never did get it in all the way, the heck with it!

Tell me how you did it man? I stuck a piece of 2x4 behind there after I got the pin started in a little, then I put a small body hammer up against the pedal frame thing, and pounded it with a 2lb ball peen, lol. The brake pedal one I worked it on as far as I could with my hand and then prized it on the rest of the way with the nail file thing on my little swiss army knife. lol

Corey told me to use some pliers to press it out and press it back in. So I used a pair of small channel locks to press it out a bit then used some side cutters to pry it out of the pedal arm thing. then just lined it up and used the channel locks again and pressed it back in. I think its a 4 out of 5 stars on the PITA scale!LOL

I like that shot of you cruizing in your new car Monkey! Cute man. Yeah, well, with the IRS rear end came Cobra rear brakes, so my rear rotors were about the same size as my front ones, which I thought looked a tad odd, and I wanted Cobra front brakes anyhow, sooo.

I had some channel locks and vice grips out there, but I couldn't get ahold of that pin with them, I just destroyed the stock pedal to get it out of my way. Tore it all to pieces. The only one I didn't tear up was the brake pedal cover, and it was worn out anyway. So I just threw what was left of them all in the trash.

I have had so many V8's I took it as a challange to build a V6 and have been very happy. I am not yet capable of running down a 99+ Gt but I can more than hold my own to any stock Fox body GT all the way to 98 GT especially a automatic!!!
